Michele went to the start with the Leon Competicion together with the Elite Motorsport team; a troubled season due to various problems that allowed the rider from Bergamo to reach the podium in Imola in early September.
In the last stage of Mugello a victory could have been achieved, which vanished due to a technical problem with the splitter (yet another).
Despite the whole year, it served to accumulate experience and above all kilometers, in a championship of high level and professionalism.
At Mugello after the first free practice session without a timed time, due to a technical problem, Imberti recovered in the second with a good seventh time. Good qualifying, always with the seventh time, but with the awareness of having a good pace.
Race 1 very tight, where the Lombard takes an excellent sixth place, the result of the work after qualifying and the pace imposed on his Cupra.
In the second fraction, there were all the conditions for the first victory of the season, but in the final part of the race the right front part of the splitter gives way and Imberti has to slow down, conquering third place and the second podium of the season with his teeth.
“I am leaving Mugello with a bad taste in my mouth, despite some technical problems, together with the team we managed to find a good set-up, which was then improved for Race 2”, he said.
“I had a great pace and the car was flying, my first victory of the season was taking place. Unfortunately yet another problem with the splitter denied me this satisfaction, if I continued to push I could compromise the integrity of the car, I preferred to lift my foot and settle for third place “.
“A season with ups and downs, now it’s time to turn the page and think about the next one. I thank everyone who was close to me, my father, Roby and the guys from the Team”.
